It was in October of 2010 when plans were first announced by the Sheetz Corporation that Farley’s Foodland on Bedford Road would be closed- and a new Sheetz store opened in the summer of 2011. A number of delays- most of them state permit related- have significantly delayed the project- however after about a six week halt, work began again last Monday. The store property has been leased to Sheetz. The new store will replace the existing Frederick Street store, which will remain open until the new store is complete. Steve Augustine, director of real estate for Sheetz, acknowledged that permitting issues has set the project back close to a year.
